Golf can be boring. This podcast is not.

Host Josh “Hey Wally” Waldron puts on a clinic of how to ask thoughtful, interesting questions while bringing out the best of his guests. I’m not super into golf, but that didn’t stop me from enjoying the interviews and banter. The starting point is golf, but the conversation is more about people and their passion. Count me in as a faithful listener.

Interesting & Fun

It’s a fun listen and I learned a few things also. Can’t wait to see what’s next.
